9 Things We All Know Going Back To School, As Told by Disney

Back to school is upon us and there is no better way to describe it than with Disney characters.

It's that time of year again, every college student is gathering at Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond, and the lines are ridiculous. While most of us are excited to be heading back to school, a few may feel slightly sad to be leaving home. Either way, you can relate to some familiar Disney characters on the highs and lows of getting back to college.

1. You just can't contain your excitement to be back at school with all your friends and sorority sisters.

2. Your room starts to become a mess as you start to decide what you should and shouldn't bring.

You wonder how does one person own so many T-shirts, and sadness fills you as you realize not every item in your closet can be brought with you.

3. Then it is time to go back to school shopping, you and your mom go to Target and you pretty much buy everything in sight and wonder how you ended up with an $800 bill, and you still haven't even bought new clothes or shoes yet.

4. The endless amounts of packing.

It seems like all you do is pack, and it seems like the mess in your room just keeps on taking up every inch of the floor. You don't know what to bring and if your bringing too little or too much, and the days till leaving just keep getting closer. You think to yourself do I need to pack 10 mugs, do I really need eight pairs of heels, are my 50 childhood stuffed animals really gonna be useful? Exhaustion takes over and you decide to just take a nap.

5. The days are going by quickly, you and your best friends from home decide to meet one last time for your goodbyes.

It is one big reunion filled with laughter, way too much food, and very bad dancing.

6. All of a sudden the excitement you had subsides, and you are overwhelmed with sadness.

Saying goodbye to your mom and your best friends never gets easier, even the third time around is still way too hard. You cry your eyes out and you still have a few days left till the final goodbye.

7. It's your last two days, you eat everything your parents make, because you know to cherish a well-cooked home meal when you can barely make microwaveable mac and cheese.

Your hometown friend and you hit up your favorite restaurant one last time because it is going to be a while.

8. The day has come you are leaving home for your other home, and the sadness is still there but now you can't wait to leave.

You think about all the freedom and great memories you'll make with your friends, and you know that your mom is just one phone call away.

9. The final stage about going back to school is the drive there, and if you live as far as I do from school this about describes your feelings toward the drive.

So that's it, everyone. Remember to have an amazing semester, be positive, drive safe, and in the words of Cinderella "Have courage and be kind."

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
